ABOUT USTravis M. Smith, Owner - Comfort Keepers Austin

Comfort Keepers is locally owned and operated by Travis M. Smith. Travis is also a Certified Senior Advisor (CSA) which is the leading certification for professionals serving seniors and is a designation awarded only to qualified individuals. He knows from experience the difference caregivers can make. Travis’ grandmother suffered from dementia for many years. In the later years, she needed 24/7 assistance, and it was too much for his family to handle.

With the help of some very special caregivers, Travis’ grandmother passed the way she wanted to—with dignity and in the comfort of her own home. Travis remembers what it was like to be on the client side of caregiving. Every day he strives to maintain an experience for Comfort Keepers clients and their families that would make his grandmother proud.
